Always intriguing to hear about creative things folks do with technology.
"Bluetooth trackers are those tiny tags that help you find lost items. They attach to your house keys or wallet so that if those things are misplaced, you open a smartphone app and tap a button to make the tracker play an alarm. That sound lets you find the item more easily.
But that’s not all these trackers can do. You can squeeze a lot more value out of the tags by thinking beyond the items that live in your pockets."
The writer put the Tile tracker to the test in several ways:
Searching for his Apple TV remote, finding his travel luggage, finding his car is a large parking lot, and tracking his dog.
He suggests that those situations were specifically for him but there are plenty of other ways to use trackers.
"Busy parents may benefit from adding trackers to the jackets of their young children, for example. People with medical conditions may want to attach trackers to devices they need to find quickly, like inhalers. In other words, with a little bit of inventiveness, the things that are truly important to you won’t become lost."
Any other tracker creative uses out there?
